Shuttle External Fuel Tank for STS-127 Arrives for Preps
The external fuel tank for space shuttle Endeavour's STS-127 mission to the International Space Station now is at Kennedy Space Center for launch preparations. ET-131 arrived at Kennedy Feb. 21 and was taken off its transport barge, Pegasus, and moved into the Vehicle Assembly Building. The tank then was lifted into a checkout cell on Feb. 23 to begin preparations for launch. The tank and twin solid rocket boosters will be attached to Endeavour for a targeted lift off in June.
